Bornwird (Frisian: Boarnwert) is a very small village in formerly West
Dongeradeel - as indicated by the flag: diagonal from top hoist to bottom
fly as in the former municipality flag. The lily has been derived from
the Coat of Arms of the Aylva family (say: Alüa). <It is not totally insignificant
as my mother was born there and the 'Hervormde' church is very old (and
well worth a visit.)> White and red are the colors of the old bishop-colors
